  1. Ok I solved it! I needed to do the OS upgrade from 4.0 to 4.1 first. The blank file then loaded and then the new library. Thanks for the info about the blank file. Thanks Edward
  2. This desk has always been a nightmare to update! I cleared the user files. I tried to load the blank file and got a wrong file type error. I am still getting the Failed 108 message at 95% Just to confirm I am loading gft38_ft.ift I once managed to pick up a rogue file from the website at one point in the past.
  3. I am trying to update the fixture library on my TLXtra from 36 to 38. The new library starts loading normally but just before completion 90% it fails with error code 108. Thoughts please?
  4. Sorry for the delay in replying. Thank you for your reply, I did work it out eventually, exhaustion, as so often happens meant that I wasn't thinking correctly. I was impressed by the desk, I had 28 fixtures varying from movers to geysers to a projector dowser. Once I got it all up and running it was a joy. Thanks again. Terry
  5. Just getting to grips with my first big show on the TLXtra after using an ML24. Apart from the buttons being in the 'wrong' place all is going reasonably well! I am learning this desk as I go but the problem I am having is that after controlling a dimmer channel using the key pad and wheel and then controlling the brightness of a fixture again with the wheel, the dimmer channel remains controlled as well. I can't work out how to make the controller forget the dimmer when I move to a fixture. Probably missing something obvious here, I usually am, but it would be a great help to know where I am going wrong.
  6. More. . . . As you would expect when trying to install the fixture update I went through all the possible fixes including resetting the desk and unplugging it and waiting for a minute or so before powering it up again. All to no avail, the error message recurred each time. This morning whilst waiting for the kettle to boil I powered up the desk and tried again. To my exasperation it worked. Same memory stick same everything. Frustrating isn't it?
  7. My ML24 is a nightmare when it comes to updating via USB. I am trying to update from V30 to V32. I am loading gft32_00.ift It starts loading and eventually it gets to 99% and then gives the error message 'Wrong File Type' My desk seems very picky about USB sticks and it is hard to find one it will talk to. I have tried reformatting them and being a Mac user I have tried using the DOS formatting available. Any thoughts please? Terry
  8. Er no it doesn't. Sorry to be so long in replying but I haven't been near the desk for a while. What I want to be able to do is release all selected fixtures in one go. Pressing the clear button has no effect on selected fixtures as far as I can see. Maybe I am missing something.
  9. When working with 3 pages of fixtures and programming under pressure it is not uncommon for a fixture to be left selected, or when needing to change the fixture selection, it would be great to have a 'deselect all'button. I was wondering if this could be engineered in a software update because it would have to use an existing button. (Or something on a keyboard?)
  10. After reading around the forum I think I have found the answer to my own problem. It seems that during the upgrade the LCD settings were altered making the display disappear. Never had anything like that happen on an upgrade before.
  11. I have just upgraded my ML24 to v4.0 but whilst the desk said the upgrade is successful I have lost all of my LCD displays - nothing just black. As I was about to set up the board for a show this is crisis time. Anybody help?
  12. I seem to have got into a situation whereby when in playback mode, on the bottom 'B' bank both the 1-12 and 13-24 LEDS are lit. Consequently I cannot drive any lamps from 13-24 although the monitor shows they are in the memory. Also I cannot manually drive any of those lamps either. I would consider any speedy help you can give as I have a show tonight. Two people who have used the ML before have seen this but couldn't remember how to get out of it. I am running a rig of generics plus some LED PARs. I am hoping that I am not going to lose the whole show. I have tried resetting the desk and reloading the show but the problem is obviously being recorded as well.
  13. Does anyone have a profile for the Miltec MTC-Par144Q range? I have tried making a profile but I am doing something wrong somewhere and I am under a bit of pressure. Apparently Miltec say that they sent the details and Zero88 say they haven't received them and of course it is Plasa week. Add to it all I am an Apple Mac user trying to negotiate a PC. The profile I tried to make had an error message wrong file type but it had the .ift suffix. Any help would be appreciated.
  14. I see this an old topic but I have just been battling this problem. Having operated quite a few larger, almost historic desks, in my life the inability to integrate the submasters into the program function was frustrating. (Submasters only work in playback?) I ended up giving each scroller it's own sub and then noting the levels for each sub for each colour in the scroll. Laborious at first. It was then easy to dial up the colour in each sub in program mode. I was pleasantly surprised to see how accurately the Jester reproduced each colour. As a bonus if a scroll went out of trim then it is an easy matter to correct its position manually. Maybe there are more elegant solutions and if so I would love to hear them.
